If the superintendent truly wants to eliminate another problem–ongoing contract negotiations–then she ought to get involved and play a positive role. We’d welcome that involvement. But to repeatedly broadcast dated and uniformed misinformation–well, that’s not productive at all. The first few times this happened we respectfully gave the superintendent the benefit of the doubt. Sadly, we can do so no longer. The misinformation the superintendent continues to put out under her name is a hindrance to those who wish to settle this contract. Frankly, at this stage of the 21-month long process, we seriously have to question her motivation to settle the contract and work collaboratively with our members.
